Overview

Picture yourself relaxing on the deck of this beautiful 65- foot schooner as she sails out of Gloucester harbor on a light southwesterly breeze. Join us for a two-hour sail and get a taste for what it was like to sail on a fishing schooner a hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails, or just sit back and take in the sights and sounds of Gloucester's coastline. Some of our weekend public sails feature music. We offer group rates. And we specialize in private charters for weddings, corporate entertainment, teambuilding, birthdays and more. The Lannon is a great place for a party!

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed our last sail of the season. We pushed our season a bit longer than usual this year because of the beautiful weather. Fall sailing really is the best!

Great late season sail. 15-OCT-17. Grandson (2 yrs 5 mos) enjoyed the water and wind. We try to go at least once a season.More

We are always glad to hear when young children enjoy coming onboard. Some people are concerned about bringing their kids onboard, but we try to ensure them safety is our first priority, followed by enjoying Gloucester's beautiful harbor. We look forward to sailing with you...More

Leslie, thank you for your comment on understanding not going beyond the breakwater. We want our passengers to have the most comfortable ride as possible and with Gloucester's harbor being protected we can do so when the seas are rough. Thankfully, there are plenty of...More
